Tru-Seal Attic Hatch challenges the conventional attic hatch design.
Rather than pushing into the attic to gain access (the way the conventional design works), Tru-Seal Attic Hatch is fastened onto the ceiling from underneath.
This allows us to fully insulate the access with batt insulation to the same R-Value as the rest of the attic and to achieve a proper 100% vapour barrier seal.
Patent Pending Tru-Seal Attic Hatch is a 2 door system.
The first door (Seal Door- fig.3) is installed right after the drywall stage. This allows the attic to be sealed up during the rest of the building process.
The second door (Finish Door- fig. 4) is installed right at the end of the finishing stage. This is a decorative door that will cover up any stippling, paint or scratches that the Seal Door sustained during the building process.
By fastening the door from underneath, we are able to use friction fit batt insulation in the cavity which not only eliminates the half inch of dead space that a conventional door has in order to gain access into the attic, but also allows us to insulate that cavity to the same R-Value as the rest of the attic.
-Maintain a continuous vapour barrier across the ceiling to prevent air leaking into the attic
- Less bulky than a conventional lid which makes it easier to gain access into the attic as well as blends in more with the ceiling
-Achieve the same R-Value as the rest of the attic (R20-R80)
- Eliminate the space around the conventional attic access by using friction fit batt insulation. This prevents the attic air to meet at the gasket seal where potential leaks exist
-Reduce the risk of Attic Rain due to the continuous vapour barrier seal
-High Quality Rubber Gasket Seal stands up far superior to weather-strip seals to properly seal the hatch
-Available in Custom Sizes as well as Standard R.O. 22 1/2" x 26"
Tru-Seal Attic Hatch includes the two door system, cleats and the necessary fasteners and screw covers.
*Insulation is not yet included as new builds get the insulators to insulate the hatch while doing the rest of the house*
Tru-Seal Attic Hatch properly seals and insulates your attic access.
Have you experienced frost build up and water damage on your ceiling (such as Attic Rain)?
Tru-Seal is designed to eliminate the air flow from the interior of the house to the attic thus eliminating the frost buildup in the access.
Tru-Seal Attic Hatch saves you money and reduces the carbon footprint of your home.
Tru-Seal Attic Hatch is available in custom sizes so you can easily fit a new Tru-Seal into your existing attic access!
If you find that the old trim left an ugly spot from removing the old hatch, let us know and we can make the Decorative Finish Door slightly bigger to cover the old trim spot! This saves you from making unnecessary drywall repairs!
